$10,000 for your profile - At Laurentian Bank, planning your retirement carefully and optimizing your investment portfolio really pays

    MONTREAL, Nov. 15 /CNW Telbec/ - As part of its 2008 RRSP campaign,
Laurentian Bank is offering its existing and future customers a chance to win
$10,000 in RRSP. There are two ways to enter the contest.
    First, customers can update their investor profile by meeting with an
advisor(1) at their branch. By updating their customer's investor profile,
advisors are able to optimize the portfolio to match the investor's actual
situation while making sure expectations are met. Regardless of the investor
profile - cautious, moderate, balanced, dynamic or aggressive - the customer
will have the benefit of an investment portfolio adapted to his or her
personal financial situation and in line with his or her investment
    Customers can also participate in the contest by establishing a
retirement projection with their advisor. The retirement projection allows
customers to get a straightforward, clear and accurate report of the action
plan they should adopt to meet their retirement objectives. With this tool,
the advisor will be able to establish an investment strategy allowing the
customer to avoid the unpleasant surprises inherent in poor retirement
    This contest is open to all customers who update their investor profile
or map out a retirement projection together with an advisor at one of the
Bank's branches before January 31, 2008.
